Jon,
Another option for oil would be a good mineral base hydraulic oil, like the Mobil DTE series. I have used these in both motor cycle transmissions and also on large milling machine spindle transmissions with great success. They have great lubricating properties, good additive package and work well at elevated temps. I have run them in hydraulic pumps, which they happen to be designed for, at over 7000 psi and 200 deg F, pretty good stuff.

I was talking to Jon at a recent meeting of the Qld branch of DLRA, at Brisbane. I do know he has an awful lot on his plate at the moment.

All good thanks guys, been a little distracted lately.
Decided a couple months ago that something else that needed to be right for me to run in Feb 2014 wasn't going to happen in time.

Just started doing some small bits again, nothing worth showing.

Cheers

Not to HiJack your thread, just looking for some thoughts on gear ratios before I have Robinson make them. Hope the 14 trans is working, Jon.
The gears are like $500 a set, so want it right the first time. And if there is enough interest in a set, like five or ten, The price goes down a little. Like a group buy?
Andit looks like the old 6th gear set can be installed in 5th's position so Only 4th and 6th gear need to be made.
Thoughts?


Thanks

Walkabout....
Something about riding his treadly (Australian for Bicycle) from East to West across Australia for charity.
Australia being about the same size as the lower 48 States, and the middle being largely desert
He might be a while

What follows is an email from Jon to all of his workmates;

Hi

Well……………… We made it.
We turned up in Byron Bay around 4:00pm on the Sunday the 27th without any injuries or major incidents.
A massive thanks to everyone who helped us along the way, especially our support crew of Ken Schoemaker, Reegan Cussworth, Ang and Glenn Whitehall and Ness Keogh.
We rode the bikes but they made it possible and were making sure the day ran smoothly before we started and after we stopped riding.
There were a lot of other people who helped along the way but I’ll not start mentioning names as I’ll people out because of my sieve memory.
Thanks also to Steve and Marshall (the other two nutcase riders) for putting up with my idiosyncrasies and supporting me on the not so good for me days.

We saw some amazing countryside and met some really interesting people along the way.
I didn’t throw my bike into the ocean at Byron, the place is too pretty to litter, my bike is leaning up against the wall at the back of my  house, last seen with a couple of spiders eyeing it off.

It wasn’t about a bike ride though, it was about raising awareness of and money for Steve and Mozart’s charity Hope and Care for Little Souls, I believe we have raised a bit over $260,000 of our $500,000 target.
A massive thankyou for everyone who contributed to our fundraising efforts and to those who are still about to, every dollar is greatly appreciated, Steve and Mozart will achieve a lot from your generosity.
